Very simple, straightforward, honest restaurant. Fish is fresh and well cooked by mama's owner. You can't taste a better octopus in the whole Crete! It's a dream for seafood lovers.

You arrive and the friendly couple managing the restaurant lets you choose your dishes from a list. We had nice seafood home cooked with attention. Friendly service / moderate prices.
